• Former Presidential Candidate Rick Santorum Endorses Rival

    Senator Rick Santorum dropped out of the Presidential race today. He wasted no time in endorsing his former rival, Senator Marco Rubio.

    From CNN:

    Former Pennsylvania Sen. Rick Santorum ended his presidential bid on Wednesday, throwing his support behind Florida Sen. Marco Rubio.

    Santorum made the announcement Wednesday night on Fox News’ “On the Record,” saying he spoke with Rubio “for more than hour” Tuesday before making up his mind.

    Santorum is the first former candidate to throw his support behind another candidate, since Governor Rick Perry endorsed Ted Cruz. Many of Senator Santorum’s supporters hope he finds a place in public life, even if it’s not the White House.

    Santorum is a staunch supporter of many issues core Republicans hold dear, especially social issues like abortion and gay marriage.

    Santorum’s endorsement of Marco Rubio may be a beginning of what’s next for Senator Santorum.
